Wildfire

“”Wildfire” is about his journey into the spirit world. The title is nice and direct. It’s from a part when Brand dances naked between two fires called “Wildfires”.”

In thoughts from visions of the night,
when deep sleep falleth out of sight.
Many a strange thing will you dream –
though it is never what it seems.

Awakened from my troubled sleep –
where dreams once lost as
nightmares creep,
to steal my soul and suffocate
what sanity remains.
My anger mute –
my anguish blind
within this sad fragmented mind,
your eyes the spark to light the
fire that burns away my pain.

Protected by reality –
yet you still fear the beast in me,
your reckless tongue could be the key,
you’ll be the first to die
if it breaks free.

Alone tonight –
myself and I,
on raven wings our spirits fly.
All hope has fallen out of sight
without the wit or will to fight.
I face up to my destiny –
you’ll see another side to me,
a love that dare not speak it’s
name is born tonight of sweat and
flame and…..

Wildfire – hallucinations
fill my mind with
Wildfire – a love so strong
that it is blind.
Wildfire -a dream of such
intensity.
Wildfire – it verges on
insanity.

Protected by reality –
yet you still fear the beast in me,
your reckless tongue could be the key –
you’ll be the first to die
if it breaks free.

In streams of raw emotion
down my cheeks the tears flow,
with my tongue tied I damn these
eyes that let my feelings show.
Bursting with frustration –
feel the cancer eat my mind,
flirting with damnation –
to all danger I am blind.
Twisted and contorted –
forsaken and forlorn,
like the love you have aborted –
yet tonight I am reborn in….

Wildfire – we’re like the
spider and the fly,
Wildfire – upon your web
ensnared am I.
Wildfire – bound by threads
that hold me tight,
Wildfire – so sweet the kiss
so cruel the bite.

How could you be such a fool,
to dare to break the golden rule?
Yet in the light of day I see
that you were right –
the fool is me!
In streams of raw emotion
down my cheeks the tears flow,
with my tongue tied I damn these
eyes that let my feelings show.
Bursting with frustration –
feel the cancer eat my mind,
flirting with damnation –
to all danger I am blind.
Twisted and contorted –
forsaken and forlorn,
like the love you have aborted –
yet tonight I am reborn.

Now my futile cries for help
are drowned in laughter.
Searching though I know I’ll
never find what I’m after.

I seek a release from this
web of deceit –
now my terror is growing.
There is no escape from my fate
it’s too late –
all my fears are showing.
Though I’m running from
something that just isn’t there –
the panic is real,
and you must be blind for
my words cannot hide the
heartache I feel…

Please God help me now.
